School Principal tried for sex crimes



In 2007, a school principal was charged with sex crimes (2 counts). While he was awaiting trial, parents created an uproar against him being allowed to continue serving at his job. Under pressure, he resigned. His name and picture have been on the news.
. . .
Now, the trial is over. He has been found "not guilty." The news report said he was accused of having contact of a sexual nature with a woman of age twenty, at a party away from the school, and the jury believed that it was by mutual consent.

How hard will it be for this man to get a comparable job, since he was accused of sexual misconduct? Anyone who googles his name will find dozens of stories about this accusation. How many people will even read that he was found "not guilty," compared to all those who read news articles while he was under suspicion?

I would not do what he did, or approve of it, but I have sympathy for him. "Innocent until proven guilty" does not mean his life will ever return to its former path.

That's the difference between the UK and the USA Scholar.
Over here he would have been suspended on full pay until the court case was over.

As a matter of interest, how come a 20 year old is still at school?
